Wisconsin Weekend

Last weekend, I did pretty much all my favorite things in the span of 72 hours: I went on a brewery tour in New Glarus, Wisconsin on Friday afternoon with my husband and in-laws; on Saturday, some friends and I drove back up to Wisconsin for the Sheep & Wool Festival, and on Sunday, I stayed closer to home and met up with a few friends at the Renegade Craft Fair. Whew! I seriously need another weekend to recover from my weekend, but it was worth it. Plus, I got lots of knitting done in the car!

I took the most photos on the New Glarus tour - it was seriously the coolest brewery tour I've ever been on, and the facilities were stunningly beautiful. You can see all of my photos on Flickr if you are so inclined, I've just chosen a few of my favorites here:

The Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival is one of my favorite events all year, but I really fell down on the job for documenting the experience through photos. I did manage to take a few cute sheep snaps, and if you follow me on Instagram, I posted some fun stories of baa-ing sheep while I was there.

I managed to bring home only 1 skein of yarn, a beautiful hand-dyed colorway from Bijou Basin Ranch on a brand-new base called Himalayan Summit (it's going to become a new design for later this fall!), but I made up for that restraint by bringing home tons of spinning fiber! I bought 6oz of shetland fiber, some layered batts, and a few pretty braids of hand-dyed fiber.

Thanks for stopping by, I'll have another finished project to share with you this Friday. See you then!
